5 Tips to Save Money When Organizing Your Home

Organizing your home and garage on a budget can seem like an impossible task, but it doesn’t have to be! There are many ways to save money when it comes to improving your home’s organization, including using unused space to store your things. At Garage Décor and More, we offer a wide-variety of storage solutions that will save money and make your home more organized at the same time.

Know What’s Important

When you begin to look around your home or garage, it’s important to decide what you may or may not need. Tossing stuff in a box is always an option, but you’ll probably just end up digging through old boxes when you actually need something. Start by knowing what’s important—and what can go. Identify items that don’t fit with your current lifestyle or are no longer useful. Throwing everything out is never a good idea; even what you believe to be trash has value! If it’s still in good condition, give it away or sell it online for additional income and to save space.

Don’t Hang on to Unwanted Gifts

If you’re like most people, you have a few gifts lying around that you got over the holidays but never wanted. Instead of throwing them away (or storing them in your attic for 20 years), why not sell these unwanted gifts? Craigslist or eBay are great options here; just be sure to take some clear pictures, post detailed descriptions and set a fair price – and don’t wait too long, as many holiday items tend to sell well before New Year’s Day.

Once you know what you want to keep and what needs organizing, Garage Décor and More can help layout a plan for the best cabinets, shelving and more, depending on your personal taste and budget.

Create a Space That Works for You and Your Family

Now that you’ve decided what you want to keep and organize, it’s time to think about strategy. Would you like the sleek look of cabinetry on your garage’s back wall, or is open shelving better for what you want to organize? We even offer a slatwall product that is ideal for hanging items of all sizes, keeping them easy to find and off the floor.

When you’re trying to stay organized, it helps to get creative about your storage spaces, and we are organizational experts! For example, don’t use prominent storage space for items you barely use. We offer affordable Hyloft storage systems that securely store items from garage ceilings so it’s easy to access, but still out of the way. From sleek storage equipment that blends with the rest of your home, to custom installation of hooks and shelves, we can organize supplies by type for easy access and when you need them.
